The Silent Ballet: Volume 3 [LostChildren021]


Published February 7, 2007






The Silent Ballet: Volume 3


Winter 2007





Since the release of Volume II, much has changed at The Silent Ballet. A full website has launched, fulfilling our promise of extensive coverage of current artists working within instrumental and/or experimental frameworks, and the second half of our first year as a new entity on the internet has begun. Time sure does have a way of sneaking up on you when you least expect it.
The third volume of The Silent Ballet compilation series aims to show a different side to the website’s coverage. While the first two focused primarily on instrumental rock and post-rock artists, the third compilation makes good on our claim to have interest in experimental artists, and hopefully brings some much needed variety to the series. The scope of this project was much wider than normal – some artists come from an electronic background, others focus on the art of ambience, and still others bring in a jazzy influence. This odd combination of sounds is brought together by a common thread of ”warmth” that is carried across the tracks, arguably suitable for the winter months.
Many thanks go out to the people who made this compilation possible: the artists and labels involved. We do hope some pique the listener’s interests and encourage supporting them in whichever means are deemed appropriate.

About the Artist
Jonathan Brooks is an amateur Renaissance Man. Among his many artists talents lies that of photography, and a lengthy stack of frames was scoured until we finally settled on the cover art. This has been the only cover art thus far that has been selected with a working knowledge of the music contained within the cd, but we agreed that this specific photography really captured the permeating warmth of the compilation. Those interested in contacting Jonathan for other projects should do so
